Book Review – The Wood Wife by Terri Windling

The Wood WifeThe Wood Wife by Terri Windling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Wood Wife, based on / inspired by the work of Brian Froud, started slow. It took effort on my behalf to keep reading past the first chapter or so, but the effort certainly paid off.

Rich with poetry, mythology and imagery of the Arizona desert, the Wood Wife presents the reader with mysteries, both a murder mystery and some of the more mystic, hero’s journey-ish variety. All in all, The Wood Wife was a good book and definitely worth my time.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
